Update On August MTK Fight Nights
There will be a small change of plans when it comes to the return of MTK Fight Nights. Taking place inside the LS-Live in Wakefield, England, fights scheduled for Tuesday’s will now be on Wednesday’s.
“There are a lot of unique challenges to pulling a card together in the current climate but these fifteen matches guarantee some cracking fights,” MTK Global Chief Strategy Officer Paul Gibson stated in a release.
“The remit was to make as many quality 50-50s as possible and the fact we’ve been restricted to matching domestically only adds to intrigue of the contests. It’ll be action from first bell to last.”
Moved from August 11 to August 12, Jono Carroll will face off against Maxi Hughes.
Carroll (18-1-1) is on a two-fight win streak and is 2-1-1 in his last four fights. The 28-year-old is a former IBF European Junior-Lightweight Champion and challenged Tevin Farmer in March 2019 for the IBF Junior-Lightweight Title. His last fight was a TKO-win against Scott Quigg in March.
